Renault Magnum
This orange Renault Magnum took me two years to build. Finding the right pieces wasn't easy.
About this creation
The Renault Magnum always has been an impressive truck to look at. I already built one in the late 90s but thought I could do much better. This time my eye felt on an orange one operated by on of the largest heavy haulage companies in Europe. I started this project in 2005 when orange pieces weren't available in great lots. I was in LEGOLAND in Gunzburg then and there I bought quite a bunch of orange plates and bricks in the LEGO Factory.





Back home I started building the cab. Nice color though and very different from my previous trucks! But as quite some pieces were hard to find it took me about two year to build it. And in orange this was more or less the only European model I could build. For the doors I normally used these old plate hinges but in orange you only have these locked ones. Not to be used for a smooth cab. And what I mis in orange as well are the macaronis to make the front corners round shaped. For the Magnum I didn't need both of these pieces in orange. The cab is quite squared but with making use of roof tiles for the front corners. However I took me quite some time to build it. There's not engine hump though but under the cab it's full of everything. Both doors can be opened and is had a full interior. It is equipped with a straight six cylinder Mack engine and a friend of mine took some pictures for me of the real thing to make it possible for me to make an accurate copy of it.





The striping I made myself. A totally orange cab doesn't took well on this scale I think and all this kind of detailing really gives the model a certain look.

The stepframe trailer is of a Dutch make. It is extendible and supplied with wheel tubs to carry a wheelloader. For the trailer I used dark bluish grey for the base. I started building it in black first but a fully black trailer like this doesn't look right. Another color I didn't had in stock in large quantities so I had to make quite some investment in this.





I first carried a CAT D7R LGP tracked dozer of which I'll put a separate page on MOC pages soon. Some time later I built an Atlas railroad excavator. Laden with yellow machinery it looks quite striking and especially when you picture it in sunlight.

Absolutely fantastic. It looks so real and I absolutely love that you have left a few studs showing. The engine is excellent. Would you ever consider building a classic race car transporter? Check out some of transporters in the Classic Race Teams group. You might get some inspiration and it would be great to have you on board. I will send an invite but there is no pressure to join or build.
